Correct. This is probably the reason why Vista is SHA256 everywhere, too. 

During F9, there will be another parallel and somewhat related project to hunt 
down places where md-5 and sha-1 are being used and look at improving the 
situation so that sha-256, and in some cases other hash algorithms, could be 
used.
